Hey! Been a while since pictures graced this sleek, sexy blogspot, so here are some. Let us begin with some from my last JET sponsored trip to the big city SAPPORO!
John and I stumbed onto the famous Ramen Alley in downtown Sapporo. The worst part was that we only found it after we had eaten HUGE bowls of noodles up the road. As we walked down the tiny, clausterphobic space which houses the dozens of shops we were yelled at by a Japanese lady who wanted business. She was just yelling "HEY.... HEY... HEY... HEY" for like 2 minutes while John and I were walking and looking at shop menus before I realized she was talking to us. :O
This is the view from my hotel room. The room was nice enough, although I thought it was pretty cheap that they were charging for ethernet connections by the minute. First time thats happened to me in a hotel. OH, and the beds were terrible. The sheets felt like they were made from recycled table cloths.
I went for a walk the other day and saw this car. Nothing special here but you would probably never see this in Canada. Unless we decide to let 8 years old girls start owning and driving cars.
I came to the realization halfway through my walk that taking normal pictures is for lame-os. I also just found the negative function on my digi-cam. Welcome to bizarro world.
Gas prices have fallen at least 50c in the last month. It was 156 last time I filled up.... and thats before the exchange. It was equalling about $2.10 /litre!!!
And finally, ending on a topic which comes up way, way, way too often. Japan is one of the strictest countries in the world when it comes to narcotics. Marijuana has become a recent issue since its appearing more in Universities and more recently, a very famous Russian sumo fighter was found to be possessing. Basically the Japanese Government is freaking out, thinking society is going down the shitter. Well, this is a grade 6 girl wearing the latest fashion. I also know a junior high school teacher who wears a track suit that has this design up and down the arm/leg pinstripes. And don`t get me started on shirts with rude English. Hold on and let me look up one I saw the other day.................................................... Ok, research complete. I wrote myself notes of what the shirts said, but they were on my shit old phone. Ok, one girls shirt said EAT ME across the front, and the other girls shirt said "CUM AGAIN SECRET SOCIETY" on the back.... I was going to take pics but my camera was broken (hence the new phone)
